And from you, and all of those I met during my journeys I learned something.This is the reason why I love my job. For me it represents an opportunity to meet men and women from different places and with different cultures.

We were in Venice for a day before a cycling trip in the area around Verona. We wanted to get away from the hordes of people in St. Mark's Square and were fortunate to book a tour with Giorgia. She was extremely responsive to our e-mails, asked numerous questions about our interests so she could tailor the tour, and proactively... More

Nadia did an awesome job with the tour. We did a walking tour for 3 hours then a 1 hour boat taxi. She brought us around the side streets of Venice and showed us details about things we would have never been aware of in the streets of Venice. She kept our two boys (ages 10 and 12) entertained, engaged... More

Giorgia walked around Venice with our family of 4 (kids age 11 and 12) for four hours. In the midst of a long and wonderful European adventure, this tour ranks as one of our best decisions - she met us at our apartment, and took us to parts of the city we never would have found...or wouldn't have appreciated if...

Our family of 4 (2 kids ages 10 and 13) had a wonderful 3 hour tour with Linda. Everyone loved it. We had a one hour boat tour and then walked the streets of Venice. We visited a mask shop, Rialto market, stopped for wine, snacks, and gelato, and took a gondola across the grand canal. We got a taste... More

Our family, including 3 children under the age of 10, were in Venice and enjoyed a 1/2 day tour with Linda. The entire experience was outstanding with Linda offering insight into the history and key places to see and even taking us through an old Venetian home to give a sense for life as a Merchant. The day ended with... More
